Apple Pear Sauce

Apple Pear Sauce

Katie Sechrist 14

"Pear applesauce? Papplesauce? Appearsauce? When the apple-pear sauce is served warm, you will not need any additional sugar. As it cools it loses some of the natural sweetness, and you might want to add sugar to taste."

The pears I used weren't quite sweet enough, so I ended up adding maybe a Tbsp of sugar, I also added about a 1/4 tsp of salt to accentuate the flavors. Loved the buttery smooth texture of this...

Super easy to make, and absolutely delicious. I didn't process it though, just mashed it manually because we like a chunkier sauce.

I added cinnamon to taste and a bit of lime juice for punch. Perfect for all of us.
